the last word of the segment. i'll make the comment. i'll stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs and big bird and i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. they said they could provide the service without a cost and at a lower profit. if that's the case that will always be the best product that people can purchase but my experience is that the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost. >> let's let him respond. >> i had five seconds before he interrupted me. >> this was the debate tonight that was substantive. thick with policy and it had a few moments of very sharp contrast. >> this is where there's a difference because governor romney's central economic plan calls for a $5 trillion tax cut. on top of the extension of the bush tax cuts, that's another trillion and $2 trillion additional military spending that the military hadn't asked for. that's $8 trillion. how we pay for that, reduce the deficit and make the investments that we need to make without dumping those costs on the middle-class

candidates feel about the mitt romney pledge to stop funding for pbs if elected president? first, rick santorum last night on cnn. >> would you kill big bird? >> well, as a matter of fact, i voted to kill big bird in the past. it doesn't mean i don't like big bird. you can kill things and still like them. maybe to eat them, i don't know. >> you can kill things but still like them? very interesting. >>> on to newt gingrich who went to one zoo after another during his presidential campaign. newt was on cnn last night with former michigan governor jennifer granholm, an active obama supporter of course. let's take a look. >> newt gingrich, should big bird be killed or not? >> that's total baloney. big bird makes millions and millions of dollars annually. >> save big bird! >> it's a commercially profitable show. >> i would save big bird by liberating big bird from the bureaucracy. >> jennifer granholm looks like she's still at the convention in charlotte. of course he's a big bird fan. may look like he and granholm are on the same page but newt still wants to do away with government support
, jiem, i like pbs. i like big bird and i like you too but i'm not going to keep on spending money from things to borrow money from china to pay for it. that has to be negotiated with congress. when i ran for mayor, i said i was going to cut taxes by a certain level. i didn't know how i was going to do it exactly. i had to negotiate that. so i think he's given as much specifics as president obama ever gave in 2008 when he ran for president, probably a lot more. >> mr. giuliani, just to make sure how much news was made tonight, am i still correct that the romney campaign's official position is they want to extend indefinitely or permanently the push tax cuts on the table, which would cut taxes for high income individuals? i don't think that's a matter of debate yet mitt romney seemed to repudiate that. >> if you extend the bush tax cuts, you keep taxes where they are. if you don't extend the bush tax cuts, you raise taxes. >> they're set to expire. it was your party that set them to expire i would add. i didn't to that, the republican party decided to do that. >> it's an accounting measu

. >> romney talked last night about cutting funding to pbs, the home of sesame street. and big bird was not happy. did you see what big bird did to romney's car right after the debate? show what happened. look at that. that's unbelievable. that is unbelievable. he is not happy. he is not happy. >> of course obama and romney differed on many subjects throughout the debate. there was one moment where they really came together in perfect harmony. check it out. [ laughter ] >>> and you're in "the situation room." happening now, obama 2.0 smiling, laughing, energized the president's dramatic turnaround from his lackluster debate performance. mitt romney is now admitting his controversial remark about those 47%. he now says that was 100% wrong. and the latest computer scam, hackers holding your vital data for ransom. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> the obama supporters turned out to see the president in cleveland today may have wondered where was this guy on wednesday night. today the president
, at the university of denver, jim lehrer of pbs will be the moderator for what could be potentially the most indepth and lively debates in memory. we'll zero in on domestic policy with a new format that allows for more interaction between the two candidates and more time to discuss a single topic. let's go back to the debate hall. chief political correspondent candy crowley watching what's going on. you'll be the moderator in the next presidential debate. so you will watch this about as closely as anyone. >> absolutely, wolf. you know, this is, in fact, an arena that they use here at the university -- let me explain this picture this is president obama headed toward this debate site, we know that mitt romney is already here, and i -- obviously this is quite the happening, so you see a lot of folks out on the street. in fact, when we came in, people were hanging signs from the dorm rooms. this is an arena. i'm told it's used for ice hockey and sometimes basketball. tonight, it's pure politics. not a lot of big names or familiar faces, but i think nonpolitical junkies would recognize here tonight. but
like it. romney okay, good. i'm going to stop the subsidy to bpbs, and i love pbs, love big bird, love you too, but i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. that's number one. i'll take good programs that i think would be run more efficiently at the state level and send them to the state. number three, i'll make government more efficient, cut back the firm of employees, combine some agencies and the presidents. my cutbacks would be done through attrition, by the way. this is the approach we have to take to get america to a balanced budget. president said he'd cut the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion dollar deficits for the last four years. the president's put it in place as much public debt, almost as much debt held by the public as all prior presidents combined. >> moderator: mr. president, two minutes. obama: when i walked into to value office, i had more than a trillion dollar deficit greeting me, and we know where it came from. two wars that were paid for on a credit card, two tax cuts that were not paid for, and a whole b
demoderates a debate a pbs anchor that fox has power over him. so look at the ridiculous nature of what i'm saying. this is in defense of the indefensible, on stub tans president obama was not ready. he was not ready to handle the result of the months of attacking mitt romney. he had been attacking him, calling him a liar, a his campaign. the responsible for the murder of a woman. now unfiltered meeting with mitt romney and they were face to face, that's a difficult position. so ed schultz lied about it, axelrod dishonest and liar. they are pushing a narrative of negative much like the president said he would do if you have nothing to run on you make your opponent someone to run away from to paraphrase. >> silly a couple days ago i was talking to a republic strategist african-american and she was saying that black men sometimes do have to worry about this. whether it be in business or any field. >> why? then that's. >> some white people in our society do react to a strong point of view as oh you are an angry black man. >> i eject that. it's a ridiculous proposition. you are as you are. ac
. >> stephanie: the muppets thing is really funny. cut pbs you have got a bunch of [ censor bleep ]ed muppets. good morning congresswoman. what was your impression of last night? >> i thought governor romney came across as very aggressive but he was really saying the same thing that he has been saying all along. i'm not going to put everything on the table and have a comprehensive solution to our economic problems because heaven forbid we would raise taxes on people making over $250,000. >> stephanie: right. >> he said he would repeal obamacare, and this is what i have been hearing in congress too, repeal and replace, but they forget the details of the replace. >> stephanie: exactly. >> we're not going to cut defense spending but don't you worry, we're going to balance the budget. i think the president was trying to explain why we have worked hard to stabilize the economy and now what he is going to try to do for the middle class in the next four years. so pundits are saying maybe he should have challenged governor romney more or whatever i -- i think that -- that he wa
